time fogs
a feather in her handwriting faintly 
beneath the surface of the mirror
secondhand smiles dribble down my chin
but the look into her eyes is our first mistake
sun swirling across her pepperbright skin
sin on an extant coffeeshop couch

time flashes

“what do you mean he kissed a leper?
“what’s the point in that? you kiss them
“and they fall apart.”
